Hello, I am Ellen,,, I live in this nice and quiet house built in 1938.
My biggest passion are beads and beading so I can teach you a lot about that, if you are into that.
On the moment I am a designer of special necklaces and other jewelry.
Before 2000, when I had an operation, I had different jobs, and I liked to travel a lot, I even lived on Ibiza for some time, and had my own business there. That is one of the reasons I speak so many languages so well.
But life is more quiet now, the house big enough to be a very good host, as I always am to my friends.
I like to cook, reading books, walking and riding on my bike.
So, a warm welcome for my guests, who want to have a great time in a cosy apartment, situated in an ideal part of Holland to see the Hot Spots of Amsterdam and Haarlem, but also like nature and the beach....I will see to it that you have a great time in my house!
If you want to be on yourself or like to have some advice or any kind of help,,,,,,,,
It is all up to you...
Hope to see you in beautiful Haarlem!
